The Teen Library Council at Patten Free Library in Bath is accepting submissions for its second annual student art show, slated for the month of April.
The Council will accept original submissions in any medium, including drawings, paintings, sculpture, original cartoons and animé, through March 30. Artists should be in grades seven through 12; entries may be submitted at the information desk. The council will not accept submissions of “fan art,” but original cartoons and comic strips will be considered.
“We were very excited by the student response last year,” said Jack Martin, a Morse High School senior and Teen Library Council member. “We had almost 30 pieces in the show. We hope to have an even bigger selection of works and artists this year.”
The Council will also host an artists reception April 8. For more information, contact Roberta Jordan at Patten Free Library at 443-5141, ext. 25.
